I have been Laid Off. What's Next?


I have been laid off. What’s Next?

March 30, 2020

It has been a long time since I have uttered those words “I have been laid off”, But here we are. I have to say that my previous employer has been pretty cool to maintain my Health care indefinitely. But, Having said that, I have been laid off.

What does that mean. In fundamental terms it means I am unemployed. So what does that mean to YOU? It depends upon who YOU are, and YOUR comfort with risk. I mean after all I am 59 years old. And currently unemployed. BUT, I know I can transform a Sales Organization from Box Movers to Solutions sales! How do I know I can do this? Only because I have Done this! I have done it at NECS, and I have done it at RICOH. I Assume that I am pretty good at what I do because I have had two past Ricoh Managers reach out to me, and I have heard from a couple of key NECS folks!

Here is what I know. I am VERY GOOD at Solutions Sales. I am good at bringing the chemistry of solutions sales to a branch that primarily knows how to move boxes. So If you need some one with my skills, then give me a call. and let’s see if we can work together.

What can I do for you? I can run and develop your Solutions team. I can run and develop your Production Print or Color Specialist team! And yes I can run a Branch if that is what you need. Me. I am looking to get back to work. But I have Toner in my blood, I am sad to say but I do.

Having said all this, what do you need? And how much are you willing to roll the dice? I am unemployed today. But I have already heard from two top industry managers. I say this to let you know, I won’t be unemployed for long. Do you need someone with My skills? If you do reach out to me with a reasonable offer. I say reasonable because if you low ball me (on salary) someone will come along a month later and make me a legit offer. And I will be compelled to consider that offer. After all, I know what I am worth, because I know what I bring to the table. So make me a genuine offer, and we can start doing Sales Trainning NOW, while we wait for this Corid-19 stuff to pass. So when we come out on the other side we will be READY TO GROW!!!! If You have the vision I May be YOUR GUY. But that is up to you.

On a final note if you are trying to build a great organization I have a history of bringing talent with me, So call me, let’s talk 603-765-2767.

       Not sure 59 is necessarily young, but at least not old. It may work out that the company that let me go will call me back, but they did not use the word "furlough" when they let me  go. They did however extend my health benefits and a few other courtesies so I am grateful for that. Thank you for your friendship. I appreciate you and P4PayHotel! What a great resource for our industry!

@VinceMcHugh, I know we chatted on Linkedin earlier today, but I just wanted to tell you that I appreciate our friendship and all you've done to support me and the Print4Pay Hotel over the years.  You're still a young guy!!!  Wish you the best and let me know if you need a reference.
